Course Description
successful evaluation and treatment of the shoulder complex entails an accurate understanding of its normal and abnormal anatomy and patho-mechanics. Treatment of the shoulder can be complex and confusing based upon the multitude of approaches that exist. By utilizing a systematic approach, therapists and athletic trainers may focus on a problem-solving basis to accurately and successfully evaluate patients with a variety of shoulder conditions. Included in this two-day workshop is an overview of the most common orthopedic conditions in which therapeutic intervention is indicated, evaluation and treatment schemes to promote successful outcomes and significant lab time. Attendees will further their development involving effective evaluation and treatment (surgical as well as non-surgical); including differential diagnosis, manual therapy, exercise prescription and evidence supported treatment techniques for the shoulder proper.

Participant will be able to:

  • Identify evidence supported treatment techniques used in shoulder rehabilitation
  • Perform modified examination techniques and "special test" based upon history, screening and stage of the condition e.g. acute vs chronic
  • Identify and demonstrate various treatment techniques to facilitate the rehab process post RCD, Labral Injuries and total/hemi arthroplasty
  • Perform basic and advanced mobilization and other manual therapy techniques to help facilitate normal recover
  • Demonstrate appropriate exercise prescription and dosing based on the stage of the condition and the recovery process Agenda
